Because of the lock-down, our kids were getting antsy. We had seen and played these arcades before so we knew what to expect. We purchased Dig Dug (my husband's favorite) and Space Invaders (from another place). The little counter arcades are just pure fun! They worked as we expected. Plug and play. No problems with the buttons or joystick. They seem to move and play smoothly and accurately. Play is just like what we remember from our 80s arcade days!

Digging Dig Dug!!!
Awesome arcade action at home. Our family loves the authentic throwback action from the vintage days of the classic arcades. Plays great , no issues with the controls.
Dig Dug lover since 1982!
The first one I received had a glitchy joystick (and had been previously opened), but the second one worked great! It is 100% like playing the original arcade version.
This game is great and just like the arcade game I remember as a kid. India P
FEELS LIKE THE ORIGINAL ARCADE MINITURIZED. iT'S AWESOME!!!!!
definitely recommend if you can get it on rollback
I got this on rollback last month for 99 bucks and this is a great little cabinet. The joystick has a little travel so I may upgrade that in the future. These are both the great arcade roms and play great!
Dig dug in miniature
This a small machine. But it is a nice game. The space that it takes up on the tabletop is manageable. It plays like I remember the arcade version playing.
Fun Approximation of the Arcade Experience!
Non-snobby review from a retro arcade enthusiast. All in all I love this thing. It recreates the arcade cabinet without the size and the arcade controls are about the most accurate you can get without spending a lot of money or putting in the time. Even then it's nice to have a 4 way controller instead of the 8 way you would be using on a multi-cade. Positives: - Decent controls, not perfect but good. - Good build aesthetics. It's not the arcade cabinet but close enough. It's a good conversation piece when not in use. - Sounds is decent. - Saves high scores between power cycles. - Is the perfect size if you don't have the floor space for a full size cabinet. - Is Digdug, IMHO tied for Namco's best game of the time with Galaga. Neutral - Digdug 2 is included and while not terrible is not a great game. It mixes 1 with a Qix mechanic on an isolinear field. Making matters worse it requires 2 buttons which the positioning does not allow. I wish it had Digdug VS. from the 90's instead. Not going to ding on this as you buy it for Digdug. Negative - The screen is a bit washed out but not as bad as other reviewers have pointed out. It's still very playable. - The normal price is way too much. For having just one game on it should be between $100-150. I would have preferred it had Namco Museum and be 50 more. Of course then it would have been different cabinet art which defeats my reasons for wanting Digdug. Anyway, complaints are minor I suggest picking this up if you catch it on sale.
Great for Dig Dug, terrible for Dig Dug 2
If you want Dig Dug only this is a dream. If you want Dig Dug 2 this is terrible. It's a cool looking little system. The problems arise because DD1 uses Pump and DD2 uses Pump and Jackhammer. The system only has a single button. So for DD1 you can play either right or left handed. For DD2 the button on the left is pump and right is Jackhammer. Since you need the joystick to move unless you have three arms it is nearly unplayable.
